Meet our team and what they have on offer.

We have an amazing team of trainers who can be contacted on to sign up for advertised trainings or to discuss additional sessions.

Despite being in lockdown for much of 2021, the team offered our county 19 training sessions in addition to many face to face first response practical sessions.  In total 105 volunteers in Essex South East were given 1st Response training during 2021 by our team.

Essex SE Trainers offered sessions at the Anglia ROVE virtual training day, numerous Safe Space sessions for Anglia and Girlguiding and have also run 1st Response courses on Zoom in various counties across the UK (Northumberland, Devon, Cambridgeshire East and Buckinghamshire to name a few).

The team:

Julie Nye:   County Adviser Responsible for Training, general topics for training including Programme, 1st Response Trainer

Angela Ellis: Safe Space Trainer, general topics for training, including Programme, money matters, gift aid, new leaders

Kay Smith: general unit topics for training including games, songs etc

Janet Nelson: general topics for training including STEM, Programme, prospective 1st Response Trainer

In addition to 1st Response and Safe Space training, our team have previously trained the following topics. These can be repeated upon request

STEM activities (science, technology, engineering and maths)

Money matters and Gift Aid

Note regarding First Response.

Girlguiding and Scouting run the same course for first response.  If you have completed a first response course with Scouting please contact Julie on the above address with details and she will add your qualification to GO.

If you have passed an external course, at present you simply have to contact Julie, at the above address, with a copy of the syllabus and the certificate to show when you completed it.  Julie will compare your syllabus with the first response syllabus and contact you to make arrangements for a telephone call/zoom call to fill in the gaps (almost always dental accidents and strokes if you did paediatric first aid, plus the new sepsis/meningitis and tourniquet details).
